Our New Treasury Secretary?

Barack Obama campaigned on his alleged "judgement to lead."  The nomination of Timothy Geithner for the Secretary of the Treasury makes a mockery of that claim.  The nomination, and the circumstances surrounding it, have raised many issues and questions - not only about the nominee himself, but also about senators and others reviewing it. 

Let's look at it another way:

Suppose you or I had done the following...

1) ... been in charge of overseeing an entire industry (the New York Financial Industry) that had collapsed and brought down the whole country with it

2)  ... cheated on our taxes.

3)  ...  lied about paying that taxes that we owed

4)  ...  called our tax cheating an "honest mistake"

5)  ...  hired an illegal employee

Now, if we had done all of these things, do you suppose we would ...

A)  end up in jail 

or

B)  be nominated for a position in the President's cabinet?

Is this really part of the "Change we can believe in," or were those just words?
